Bug of the Week: Bloody Nosed Beetle


This is one of my absolutely favourite beetles! They are clumsy, slow, and very fun to handle. When you pick them up, they quickly spit up haemolymph in defense. Where I grew up in Canada, we had a tonne of Galium  growing behind our home. Unfortunately, there are no beetles as charismatic and bumbly as bloody nosed beetles to enjoy. Guess I’ll have to get my fill while still living in the United Kingdom.
